Use of CO2 as Heat Transmission Fluid to Extract Geothermal Energy: Advantages and Disadvantages in Comparison with Water


Use of CO2 as heat transmission fluid to extract geothermal energy is currently considered as a way to achieve CO2 resource utilization and geological sequestration. As a novel heat transmission fluid, the thermophysical property of CO2 is quite different from water. It has many advantages, such as larger mobility and buoyancy resulted from the lower… (More)
